Judith W. Umlas: Effective leaders must find ways to enhance people’s level of engagement, commitment and support, especially in the difficult periods all organizations experience at one time or another.
Engaged employees work with passion and feel connected and loyal to their organization. This yields higher productivity, sales, and results.
Non-engagement in the workplace results in poor performance, limited productivity, and an erosion of the bottom line.
People need consistent affirmation of their value and contribution to the organization in order to know that their efforts are appreciated.
This can be accomplished through the practice of Grateful Leadership.
Grateful leaders can tap into the power of personal commitment and dedication by acknowledging people in an authentic, heartfelt manner. Those leaders who model true acknowledgement behavior will inspire others to do the same and to want to dramatically increase their levels of contribution to the organization, making the power of acknowledgment transformational.
Umlas’s program is highly interactive and includes, case studies, role playing, actionable take-aways, the Knock Your Socks Off Acknowledgment Exercise™ for Leaders, and creation of an organizational vision statement.
